As comfortable as it is historic, Constitution Hall—housed within the Daughters of the American Revolution headquarters—tends to host more mellow acts. Think The Head and the Heart, Eric Benet and Keith Sweat. Arrive early if you can and take a quick tour of the building, whose cornerstone was laid with the same trowel George Washington used on the Capitol building. The hall has been graced by countless US presidents and formerly had a glass ceiling when it opened in 1929. Today, Constitution Hall hosts performances other than musical concerts, including discussions by the likes of Anthony Bourdain and comedians such as Louis C.K.
